Proud as a peacock
See it: Indianapolis International Airport (behind security)
Artist: Kyle Ragsdale
Since earning degrees at Baylor University (BFA) and Southern Methodist University (MFA), Kyle Ragsdale has been painting full time, working periodically as a decorative painter and stage set designer, and making fine art. Over the years, Kyle’s work has changed many times—the paint has been thick, thin, shiny and flat. He often delves into decorative floral patterns, landscapes and portraiture, but probably is best known for his mysterious elongated figures. Taken from a 2020 show called Zephyr, Proud as a peacock is an oil painting inspired by art in European castles and churches.
